At­mo­spheric depth is an im­por­tant part of any com­po­si­tion be­cause it sep­a­rates the fore-, mid- and back­ground. A dis­tinct sep­a­ra­tion of the three planes in­creases the read­abil­ity of your im­age, which in turn in­creases the visual im­pact of your im­age. El­e­ments that are fur­ther away from the viewer be­come less de­tailed as a re­sult of dif­fer­ent weather con­di­tions, such as fog, haze, hu­mid­ity and pol­lu­tion. The back­ground plane will usu­ally fea­ture less sat­u­ra­tion, con­trast and de­tails. I of­ten use a soft Cloud brush in Pho­to­shop to mimic this ef­fect.
